Fear and misunderstanding often prevent our communities from seeing the individuals behind the label “refugee.” As a consequence, refugees frequently face stigma, social isolation, unemployment, poverty, and unsafe housing. We believe that individual stories have the power to remove these barriers, and to change the way people think, vote, and welcome displaced people. When you donate, you become our partner in transforming the perception and reception of refugees worldwide, one story at a time.
How Your Donations Are Used
100% of your money goes towards the collection, production, and distribution of refugee stories:
Collection: translation, transcription, and travel costs
Production: software subscriptions, equipment and rent costs, and internship stipends
Distribution: website management, software subscriptions, and travel and materials costs for events, university symposiums, art galleries, legislative circles, the Global Refugee Archive, and more
Your donations make our work possible. If you have any questions about how your donations will be used, please contact us.

In addition to receiving an annual report and gift, you will receive ‘The Foreword,’ a quarterly impact report that we send via email. It provides a sneak peek to our monthly donors about the stories we are working to publish and where we are planning to share them.
